I want to keep my hard drive and upgraded operating system but upgrade my cpu, mobo, vga and memory. How do I do this when my operating system is identified with my mobo and etc. Will it just sence it or do I need to reinstall windows xp pro and then reinstall the vista ultimate upgrade?
Personally, I don't see a compelling reason to upgrade to Vista anytime soon. Maybe after SP2 comes out...circa 2009? What's the rush, people? Anyway, if you're going to take the plunge you'd be better off just to buy the full version.
